This version of the French national anthem  La Marseillaise was recorded in 1897 for Columbia. This particular vintage appears to often suffer from low volume, possibly caused by a softer wax composition that was used for a short time. Nevertheless, the band comes still out at a very enjoyable level.

Although issued on a 4-minute Blue Amberol cylinder, the speech does only last for 1:47 Minutes. A different take of his speech was...

Columbia Moulded Brown Wax Cylinder #9029, circa. 1901 An advanced quartette selection, from a moulded brown wax cylinder record. This cylinder was made during a short period (1901-1902) where Columbia issued their records with a playback speed of 185rpm, rather faster than the usual 144rpm of that era. Their intention was to provide a greater clarity and increased volume by using the standard cylinder format. Thus, the max. recording time was limitied to exactly 120 seconds, compared to 135...

The Cylinder Archive [ www.cylinder.de ] release for February 2016: Franz Porten, one of the German recording artist pioneers was very active at the beginning of the 20th century. This ca. 1902 recording made for the Columbia Phonograph Company in Berlin is particularly interesting as it represents his outstanding vocal abilities much better than most of the other recordings do. A plain piano accompaniment was used for classical recordings in most cases on cylinder recorded before 1906. It...

The Cylinder Archive [ www.cylinder.de ] release for March 2014: Aside from the Lambert Company, the Britain based Indestructible Phonograph Co. was one of the early adopters of using celluloid for manufacturing cylinders. This ca. 1904 recording has a quite strong volume. Too bad, that names of the recorded performers are given rarely.
